We don't really "do" Halloween at our house, but usually go to our church's fall festival where the kids play games, win prizes, and get candy. This year they also had a costume contest.
I wasn't allowed to go as myself (said the kids), so about an hour before we left I was thinking...
What can I do to easily take my knitting with me?
And I decided to go as an Obsessed Knitter.
Easy costume...I just went around putting on one of everything I've made. (I chose a short sleeved sweater since I knew that all that other wool would make me hot.) And, as every knitter knows, nothing that you knit for yourself matches, so neither did I.
The best part? I took my knitting with me (that's my "nothing-at-all" scarf that has grown quite larger.) It was actually quite a good way to knit a scarf and I got quite a lot done over the course of the evening.
So....maybe it was a costume, or maybe it was just me being myself. You decide.
